I do not have the appetite for those places any longer. I know for me my healthy lifestyle fell apart at the grocery store. Grabbing a few pairs of jeans in a size 10, and one in a size 8 just for fun, I dashed into the dressing room. Costco doesn't sell Nutrisystem products. But, guess what, it was. There are ways to save on the cost.
Summer September 28, at 7: About Me Lisa "Hi! I'm just a simple blogger from North Carolina. Thank you for visiting my page! It reminds me that there is more to life than making a living. Here you will find a little bit of everything from recipes and crafts to random, thoughts, ideas, fashion and more. Hope you enjoy reading my posts and don't forget to leave a comment.

From the menu options, I would pick 28 foods of my choice for each of the four meals which included breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.
The choices were easy as I loved almost everything they offer. The plan I chose, which is the Core plan, only includes the shelf foods instead of the frozen varieties. I got to have delicious foods such as doughnuts, pancakes, chocolate muffins, pizza, hamburger, chicken and even cake and brownies.
With all the choices, it never gets boring. The meats in the shelf items are conveniently packed in a vacuum sealed wrap but were tender and taste like they are right out of the deli. With so many varieties, I ate something different each day of the week. It was just perfectly pre-portioned meals to keep me on a healthy track.
The food contains no trans fats, and it's low in sodium. And the carbs it contains are of low glycemic index. This is why Nutrisystem food prevents fatique, reduces your appetite, keeps you fuller and energized for longer. It's safe for diabetics, too. As you will probably read in other Nutrisystem weight loss reviews, the taste is not the only thing great about Nutrisystem foods. Each meal is individually wrapped with cooking instructions which made it easy to toss in my purse and go to work.
Some of the meals are easy enough to eat while in the car. When I hear people talk about that pound cake they made the other night or watching those Tasty videos on Facebook, I am not fazed. I stopped going to buffets and doughnut shops. I do not have the appetite for those places any longer. People have asked me how do I stick to the diet during holidays or when family decides to go out to eat. But I can say I now have control.
I allowed myself to enjoy all the foods that were offered. However, since being on Nutrisystem, I have a pretty good idea on the right foods to stay clear of, and how big of portions I should have. I even enjoyed some bacon, a piece of cheese cake and a peep. The day after that Easter, I was nervous about stepping on the scales. A few weeks later, I had a birthday and, well, you know how that goes. I ate cake but just a small piece. It was somewhat of a struggle, but again, I have learned to eat small portions.
The biggest struggle was everyone trying to get me to eat more. People think that since you lost a few pounds, you can go back to eating the way you used too. Then there was a trip to the beach. I snacked on lots of fruit and veggies. I felt good about myself. The weight loss slowed down. Sixteen weeks had passed.
It had been a fun journey. My weight loss had slowed down to losing an average on one pound a week. It was better than a gain. I wished to lose more. I called and talked to a Nutrisystem counselor. I was eating every three hours. It seems like a lot of food but the snacks are tiny. Small amounts of healthy foods. My weight loss stalled for a couple weeks. I was warned this could happen but I was still a little discouraged.
I called a Nutrisystem counselor again. They are always so helpful. They suggested I change things up a bit. The also advised me to eat more.
I was also advised to make sure I drink enough water. My weight loss took off again and the pounds started dropping again. Who knew that more is sometimes less? The hardest thing for me to give up when I started Nutrisystem was bacon.
I would eat five or six pieces without even thinking about it. I am actually allowed two slices of bacon a day as a power fuel on the Nutrisystem plan but I chose to stay completely away from it. For me to eat bacon would be like giving an alcoholic a sip of wine. I also missed sitting down to a shared meal with my husband, but that has gotten better as he is fine with just a salad while I enjoy a healthy Nutrisystem pizza.
Which is awesome by the way. I continued enjoying the Nutrisystem foods and never got tired of them. I found ways to apply my vegetables to my meals in creative ways such as adding spinach or olives to my Nutrisystem pizza or adding spaghetti squash to my Nutrisystem meatballs.
The options are never ending. Does Nutrisystem weekends off work? Yes, it does work. With this plan, I picked 20 days of meals instead of 28 which left me to defend for myself two days a week. To transition off of Nutrisystem, I needed to learn to apply my own foods to my diet that are equivalent to Nutrisystem meals. It took seven months for me to reach my goal. I am so excited. I am convinced that Nutrisystem is more than a cute commercial.
It really does work! It took a lot of dedication, determination and discipline to get where I am. It helps when you have support. Again, my husband has been my biggest support. I have had a lot of positive effects from my weight loss so far. Instead she was surprised at my over all health. She asked me how I lost the weight and said she will be suggesting the Nutrisystem diet to her overweight patients.
My vitals were perfect and my blood work results came back perfect except I was low on vitamin D. One of the biggest concerns I hear from others about the Nutrisystem plan is the cost. Honestly, I said the same thing in the beginning, then I did the math. With Nutrisystem it goes to neither.
There are ways to save on the cost. Do not let that first price you see when you go online shock you. They are very nice and very knowledgeable. Here are some of the ways I saved. Having to pay for a diet is another way of motivation. Oh, and here is another benefit of losing weight….
Extra large clothes are more expensive, too! Nutrisystem before and after. I no longer hide behind big clothes. I wore that bikini on the beach and have fun buying new clothes in a size 4! I have learned to eat the right foods on my own as I still order some of the Nutrisystem foods from their A la Carte menu. This keeps me on track. I continue to walk every day at least three miles and hula hoop when I have some extra energy to burn.
The best advice I can give anyone is to never give up. Keep a positive attitude. If you think you can, you will. Something I learned is drink lots of water, keep those green vegetables in your diet, and not all carbs are bad. The people that are on the Nutrisystem ads and commercials are real.
I know, because I was one of the lucky ones chosen this past year! We went to a steak house last Saturday and I had the small grilled Salmon, a baked sweet potato and a salad. If we go Thai I get fresh salad rolls, I love em. We keep sugar free jello cups in the fridge all the time as a snack. It's a free food so.. Anyway, maybe this information will help someone.
I know for me my healthy lifestyle fell apart at the grocery store. Nutrisystem takes care of that for you. I go to the grocery store a lot these days but, it's all small purchases. There's four grocery stores between work and home so I don't mind. I don't buy foods with a shelf life for the most part. I would say that we actually save money on Nutrisystem because during the week we don't eat out at all and we don't buy very much from the grocery store. Our monthly expenditure is either cheaper or a wash but, Nutrisystem isn't costing us anymore than we were spending a month anyway.
I have a new un-opened box ready to go. I have three days from the last order. After the next box is done I may try to go off Nutrisystem. That would be 16 weeks on Nutrisystem. I think I know how to eat now. If I start to slide I'll order a card and get a new box of Nutrisystem. By Kathy on June 21, I bought this thru Amazon, sold by Charity Books. I received the card to order the food.
This is a total scam and Amazon should not even sell this if you can't get you're money's worth.. Top rated Most recent Top rated.

By Peg on January 20, I was under the impression that when I ordered this from La Leela that I would be receiving the product not a card with a code for the Nutritsystem web site. The charge for mailing a card was overpriced. It should be stated in the information somewhere that they are just selling a card! And that you have to go to a web site and then sign up to get your product.
I would not have bought this after seeing that I could get it cheaper on the Nutrisystem web site. Frye on November 16, One person found this helpful.

By Amber Lynn M on November 17, My husband ordered this for his mom her request as a bday gift. It was confusing for her- she just received a piece of paper with some codes on it. It's basically just a gift certificate for a meal plan. By KayN on June 7,
